I have been a fan of Michael Eklund for quite some time now, so when he won a Leo Award for Best Lead Performance by a Male in a Feature Length Drama for Errors Of The Human Body i jumped up out of my seat.
Michael gave a very sincere and touching speech whilst accepting his award. As he told the audience at the ceremony, making the movie changed him.
Errors of the human body is a movie about Dr. Geoff Burton (Michael Eklund), a brilliant genetics researcher, who is invited to a lab in Dresden, Germany only to discover a lethal virus is being created, which he may have unintentionally caused and be its first victim. This mystery is set against Dr. Burton trying to find redemption and peace from a past haunted by the death of his infant son.
As I mentioned, I’m a huge fan of Michael’s and I am very happy to tell you guys that we’ll be interviewing the Leo Award winner this coming Thursday!
